sample program

I have a small program example which uses strcpy to concatenate the strings
"hello\0" and "\n\0".  When I compile through opt -O1, it is okay.  When I
compile through opt -O2 or higher, it makes a mistake.  bugpoint isolates this
to "Found miscompiling passes: -inline -simplify-libcalls -instcombine" but I
can point specifically to the line of asm output which is incorrect.

LLVM opt -O2 outputs:

  movw $2560, 5(%rbx)

and 2560 is 0x0A00 in hex.  The problem is that on a little-endian architecture
this write comes out to:

0x23e2010:      104 'h' 101 'e' 108 'l' 108 'l' 111 'o' 0 '\0'  10 '\n'

the nul and the newline are in the wrong order.  The instruction should have

  movw $10, 5(%rbx)

I attached bug.ll which can reproduce the error by:

  cat bug.ll | llvm-as | opt -O2 | llc > bug.s && gcc bug.s
